Wrigley Field

"Unsatisfactory Fan Experience"

Seat Review From Section 226, Row 23, Seats 11-12
Jul 2017


I traveled from Washington DC to attend my first game at Wrigley Field on 7/23/17. From these seats, it was difficult to follow the game.

One seat (12, I think) had a totally obstructed view of the pitchers mound so you could not anticipate when the ball would arrive at the batter's box. There was no way to see the nice new information board for detailed information on the batter or even the smaller electronic board to see the lineups.

There were some small flat screens mounted under the overhang that blocked our view, but they were not large enough and had poor resolution so that you could barely make out the ball and strike counts. They carried minimal information, not even he name of the batter. I was shocked by the lack of attention to the fan experience.

In addition, there was no functioning restroom on the mezzanine level and it was a long hike up and down multiple ramps to access restrooms on other levels.

Best for... fans on a budget, being in the shade

Avoid if... you want to watch the game

    • "New walkway makes access easier!"

      (Section 232) - -

      Wrigley went under some major renovations after the 2018 season. One of the most interesting ones is that they decided to expand out the furthest 200 level sections to include a new set of stairs. Before this seat in section 232 was flush against the outer-most fence making the seat extremely diffic...

      (Section 231) - -

      Great seats. In the shade, and very close to concessions. Can't get any better.
